Cape Charles, Virginia
You can find this coastal town on the southern tip of Virginia’s Eastern Shore and the Chesapeake Bay. This historic town of Cape Charles was one of the first spots colonized in North America.
Cape Charles’s Beach runs along Bay Avenue, and it’s the only public beach that doesn’t limit you with an access fee on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
The charming downtown area has a diverse mix of intriguing shops along Mason Avenue and Hotel Cape Charles’s boutique property.
For a room with an incredible view, visitors should stay at The Northampton Hotel and, for breathtaking sunsets, have cocktails and some casual appetizers at The Shanty.

I grew up in Old Greenwich, CT with Tod’s Pt., now called Greenwich Pt. It’s about 64 acres of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, picnic areas & a lovely view of the New York City skyline. No place could be better.
Went there in the 1980’s. Too expensive!
Where is Charleston, SC on the list ?
Visited 17 years in a row…July 4th week is great!….found a great inn 4 miles south of town…great seafood, shops. As a veteran loved the July 4th parade. Go back every year.
I love Cape May and their lovely “Painted Ladies”. The Victorian homes are beautiful; so glad to see them preserved. The beach is wide and not as crowded as other NJ beaches. My favorite beach town. Enjoyed the most in off-season without crowds.
